or mandarin. Definitely citrusy but not the citrus peel that is so common. This one is moreso like the
inside of some citrus type of fruit. Slight clove, both on nose and on the tongue. Soft sweetness, a
little flat on the tongue. Comes across as a very light Fruit Beer, mixed with either clove or some sort of
floralness. Slightly dry on the finish. Not half bad, certainly comes across as real fruit and not a fake
Bottle at Butters’ Slutfest: Orange blossom and lemon aroma, reminiscent of sorachi hops. Hazy amber, with floaties, medium yellow head. Orange peel flavor from beginning to end, but finishes tart like a cumquat, but not as sour. Refreshing and tasty. Very unique. SinH4 (6393) - Garching b. MÃ¼nchen, GERMANY - SEP 29, 2017

Bottle. Hazy pale golden color with white head. Aroma is oranges, yuzu. Taste is yuzu, slight tartness, pale malts, refreshing. Silky mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Refreshing and very nice.
Cloudy dark brown orange color. It looks more like a meal than a drink. A slightly tart mikan nose erupts, along with citrus fruits, cotton candy and some sweet maltiness. Sweet malty mouth is well balanced with ample hops and a refreshing tartness. Mikan, candy apples and cotton candy all come through. Sweet malty finish. Yum. This is one of the better fruit beers I have had. thornecb (6089) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 15, 2009
This kicks ass over his other Mikan ale (why a brewery brews two mikan ales, I don’t know).
Pours hazy gold into a tulip. Head quickly recedes to hug rim. Stale wheat, pit fruit and citrus aromas. Herbs and tangy tropical fruit upfront. Dry finish.

Hazy orange pour, white head. Citrus, orange juice, sweet malt, bread, light spice, and tropical fruit. Tastes pretty good, the more I drink the more orange I notice. visionthing (5554) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 10, 2017
On tap (as "Baird Natsumikan Ale") at Pudel, Tallinn. Slightly hazy golden with a white head. BückDich (5477) - McCall, Idaho, USA - NOV 7, 2009
Rather mild, fruit aroma with unfamiliar fruits, some pale malt and hints of yeast and spices. Moderate sweet with mild, but pleasant flavours and a light bitterness. Enjoyable.
Bottle: Pours a cloudy orange color with a nice thick pure white head. The nose is bright and fruity with tons of orange and crispy hop notes. The fruitiness in the nose moves its way seamlessly into the flavor. A bit more sweeter than it is bitter, a hopped up version (ala, the IPA) would be a lot better. Almost like a pummelo, the fruit adds a lot to this that the hops normally would. Nice combination. markwise (5450) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 7, 2009
Thanks sebletitje for the share. Pours hazy orange gold with a white head. Nose is orange, malt, spice, citrus fruit, sugary light fruit, and star fruit. Flavor is a lot of sweetness and light fruit that is beginning to make me think that there is a basic Japanese fruit for beers like these. Light bodied and very sessionable, enjoyable beer. mar (5445) - Dallas, Texas, USA - FEB 6, 2009
bottle thanks to bu11zeye. cloudy gold pour with a thin white head. slight bitter nose with a tangerinish background. good on the palate with a flavor just like it smells.
